10/22 carbine 18.5" barrel vs American rimfire standard 22" barrel . Witch on would you get and why?
I am interested in the same rifle. The collectors series addresses all the things that are a PITA about the carbine. The flip up rear sight on the carbine sucks. The flip up sight always manages to flip down at the worst possible moment. I like the rear peep sight that is out of the way, always ready. In the event your optic fails just take it off and the fun continues. I also love the LOP modules. People don't think about the fit of a rifle. But fit may be more important with a rifle than a shotgun. You can adjust to an ill fitting shotgun. But with an optic there is no adjusting to the rifle. Either you are looking through the optic or you are not. Twisting your neck to an unusual position to see through an optic takes the fun out of a day at the range.Look at the collectors series similar stock to the American rifle. You will have a lot of fun with your rifle I got my first 10/22 a few months ago and love it.
